<transcy>Erasing hell (L'enfer ignoré)</transcy>
How can a loving God send men to hell?
With great compassion and humility, Francis Chan answers the essential questions you ask yourself about eternity, in the light of the word of God.
Like you, he wonders about hell. Like you, he doesn't always want to believe it. But when it comes to such a serious and definitive subject, we cannot afford to be wrong. There is too much at stake. Too many people at stake.
To make matters worse, new attitudes are emerging: who to believe? Is it enough to say a prayer to avoid hell? After death, will we have a second chance to believe in Jesus to reach paradise? Or will those who are sent to hell be destroyed after a while?
From now on, let us take the courage of faith together and let ourselves be guided by what Scripture says on the subject.
Francis Chan was born in Hong Kong in 1967. Pastor and international lecturer, he is the founder of Eternity Bible University and works with the most disadvantaged. He is the author of the bestsellers Crazy love * and Forgotten God . He is married to Lisa. They have seven children and live in California.
"It's time to talk about this taboo word. Many people go through hell on earth, but is there also a hell after life on earth? Hell ratings are at their lowest right now due to lack of public confidence. But how can thousands, maybe millions of people take Hell as a myth and continue to believe in Heaven with the precious hope that they will one day make it to Heaven? Surely, if we hate to suffer, God must hate it even more than we do! But then, how could he have created such a horrible place as the one described in Dante's Hell? And yet, this same Jesus who tells us about the wonders of Heaven, also describes a chamber of horror that is not of this world. Who will one day end up there? And why ? And for how long ? In this book, my friend Francis Chan takes a serious look at difficult and disturbing questions… and his answers might honestly surprise you! »
